Well, the Georgetown tent was definitely standing on the benches to get the best vantage point in the last race. In a VERY close race, the Hoyas defeated Charleston by taking two, three, four. Incredibly tense and incredibly talented by our Hoyas. The win puts Georgetown in third place overall for the national championships! Congratulations to our Hoyas!

The Hoyas went out and defeated Boston College in race two but fell to St. Mary's in race three. They still have to face Charleston in race six! Stay tuned for more updates!
